by far. in china things that used to be the market over there that was 30 times earned, they're now ten. we're the same way. ibm, google, go on. the list is incredible. >> what about apple? that's a private joke. let me go to rick santelli. while i was gone last week you hit 2% on that ten year. is that the ceiling or could we go higher from here, do you think? >> the conventional wisdom is that treasuries are toast and they're going to be selling off pushing yields higher. the fact of the matter is fives, tens, thirties net change on the year is 12 basis points for fives. 23 basis points for 30s. and since we're still close to historic low yields, the moves are large. if you take them out of that contest text it's not that big. i will consider this. if you look at the japanese stock market, it's up about 8%. but their currency's lost 6% against the greenback. if you didn't neutralize your exchange, you're only up a few percent. it pops out in other places. >> you got to hedge the yen out of the expert story in japan for sure. dani, same question for you. how do you want to allocate cap
-year treasury yield not rising above 2% in a definitive way? why are emerging markets like china weakening and germany, spain, falling, and why is junk debt showing real cracks here? there is this intermarket deterioration which i've been stressing in many of my writings which suggests that the conditions, just like a storm today, do not favor risk assets in the here and now and that we could see the beginning stages of another deflation pulse in risk assets. >> but about the answer to all of that, isn't the answer to all of that the federal reserve. why would rates move higher substantially when we already know the federal reserve will keep rates in check at rock bottom levels until 2013. >> the fed is keeping interest rates on the treasury side low which junk debt which the fed is not controlling is showing signs of hesitation. looks like there's a credit spread widening starting. whether that metastasizes into something more serious we'll find out, but the point is the conditions are not favorable right now for risk assets. >> david, do you want to put money in these markets? >> just ra
is -- this could be a nixon goes to china moment for tom coburn and the nra and gun safety. >> where is john feehery? where were you? do you want something done on gun safety or not? >> i would like something done on gun safety. i would like something done -- i would like more aggressive effort to get guns away from violent criminals. i'd like to get guns out -- make sure they don't get in the hands of crazy people. that's where i am. and i think that we do need to have a more aggressive background check and i have been pretty public on that. >> how about the president? does he have to recognize reality here and go for what he can get? get a single, not a home run? even though he knees he's giving protection to the people on the center right and right? still be able to say they did something. there's a lot of strategy here. >> there's a lot of strategy. i used to work for senator kennedy and senator kennedy after he got past his 30s and 40s decided what you should do in legislating is take what you can get and come back for the rest later. i think you saw that with the president on the budge

-back cybersecurity would mean more vulnerability to attacks from hackers in china and at home threatening our infrastructure. furloughs and layoffs would affect more than 800,000 workers in the defense industry at the same time that north korea is testing a nuclear bomb. cults at the irs would mean fewer tax return reviews and longer waits to get refunds. and more than 100,000 people would be thrown out of emergency housing and onto the streets. one way or another, everyone is going to feel this, while washington continues to play the blame game. >> the bottom line is very simple. the republicans have proposed devastating cuts. >> washington democrats have gotten used to republicans bailing them out of their own lack of responsibility. >> now that we're clear about what is at stake, let's figure out whether this is really going to happen. john king is cnn's chief national correspondent. john, what is the likelihood of this sequester, these forced budget cuts, going into effect starting friday? >> ali, there's no serious negotiations. so at the moment it looks like these will go in. you heard
